Reviews for Saddlemen Rigid-Mount Specific-Fit Quick-Disconnect Drifter Saddlebags - 3501-0399
First off the bags are nice. The exception is I was missing hardware when I received the bags. Mounting wasn't too great a challenge, my only complaint is for something that is supposed to be model specific I had to do some alterations. The right bag went on easy, the left bag the holes seemed about 1/4" off. I had to redo the tang that rests on the bag supports and warm the backer plate of the bag and force it into place. Once mounted the bags look good and seems pretty sturdy.I would recommend this item to a friend.
I was very impressed with the fit and am very happy with the stiffness of the bags, they hold their shape very well, I would highly recommend them over the throwover style bags. They are also very easy to remove to clean or wash your cycle.I would recommend this item to a friend.

NICE LOOKING BAGS WHEN MOUNTED ON HONDA VTX 1300C
THE HARDWARE IS NOT THE BEST FOR FINISH , THE CHROME AND WELDS ON THE SUPPORT BRAKETS ARE ROUGH . IT ALL FITS WELL BUT THE SPACERS THAT GO ON TO THE FENDER HANGERS SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE TO GO INTO THE RECESSED HOLES THE ALLEN HEAD BOLTS WERE IN .THEY MADE THEM BIGGER AND THEY SIT ON THE VERY EDGE OF THE RECESS .THIS WILL DAMAGE THE SURFACE AND IF YOU WANT TO REMOVE THE MOUNTS LATER THE FINSH AROUND THAT AREA WILL BE EVIDENT.I TRIED CALLING SADDLEMAN MANY TIMES AND NEVER GOT TO TALK TO ANYONE. I LEFT MY PHONE NUMBER 2 TIMES AND NEVER GOT A RETURN CALL ! NOT TO HAPPY WITH THERE CUSTOMER SERVICE !I would recommend this item to a friend.
The first time I ordered these they sent me the wrong part #. Then The new bags still didn't fit right. I have the shadow sabre 2007 1100. The bags were way to far forward and were jammed into the side of the seat after mounting everything on. What I ended up doing was buying some Easy brackets (Quick release) and drilling my own new holes. I think they look great! But I now have a quick detach mounting set I don't need.I wouldn't recommend this item to a friend.
I had a problem with one of the clips on the back of a bag. I called Saddlemen and they were very responsive. Said I could try to tighten by bending clip and it would be covered by warranty if I broke it. Otherwise fit is great and I saved about $100 here versus list manufacturer's price. Shipping time was outstanding.I would recommend this item to a friend.
Perfect fit for 09 Suzuki C50
I saw review from another C50 rider who purchased these and made my decision based on his review. These may be more $$ than other brands, but worth it due to the inclusion of the mounting brackets. If you've never had bags on your machine, you will notice slight wind turbulance at highway speed, but quickly get use to this. These will cover the side (stock) reflectors and helmet lock and not big enough to store a full or 1/2 face helmet. These do not interfere with pass. foot pegs or pass. comfort, and were fairly easy to install despite the vague instructions (easier to install by trial and error than reading inst.) and took about 40 mins. Be sure to have your lock tight for threads on hand before install to save added time and re-assembly. These definetly enhance the looks of my bike and recommend if going for more conservative look (not a fan of the studded look).I would recommend this item to a friend.
Rigid Mount specific to Suzuki C50
Great bags and look great on the bike. Installation was simple but I twisted off the thread on one of the threaded rods. I wish the bolts were a little longer and I could not find M8 threaded rod in Atlanta, so I called Saddlemen. They quickly sent me a free replacement. The bag over the exhaust pipe gets warm and I am afraid it might suffer in the Summer heat in Georgia so i put some aluminum tape on the bottom of that bag to protect it a little better. If that doesn't work I might rivet a little aluminum on the bottom Price match from Dennis Kirk was quick and easy and shipping was quick. I will buy from DK in the future.I would recommend this item to a friend.
They are a high quality material very pliable and soft on the soft side. The hard plastic "rigid" mounting side is very strong and will hold much more weight than you could ever load in them. The mounting system is easy on easy off and can be carried easily with the built in handles on the top of the bags. I love the bags, great styling and follow the lines on the bike very well.I would recommend this item to a friend.
